WHAT does a girl say when her friend asks her to go to the 
Sweet Paul Makerie Workshop?
She says.. yes please and thank you. 

I teach and explore ART with children.  I offer classes, workshops and throw in a birthday party here and there.  I love what I do. I’ve operated beehive ART, an art studio for children, for 7 years.  I have explored ART with children for 20. I love the surprise, the reflection and exploration with children. My mission is to offer them the time, the space and the materials to get lost in their creativity. And allow them to run with it.

And now, it was MY turn!

I was so excited about the retreat.
to get away after this long winter.
to be inspired, to learn, explore and create.  
to be a kid. to laugh. to have time to reflect. 
to be with my good friend.
to step out of the driver’s seat and let go.

I had some idea what I was getting into as Leslie had filled me in about last year’s event. But this was something else.  Charlie and the Chocolate Factory? Alice in Wonderland? Mary Poppins?  It was all of that and a whole lot more. Pleasant surprises and delicious creativity. I was humming and buzzing and purring all weekend.  

Thank you Paul and Paul and Ali and Krissa for creating such a truly amazing experience for each of us.  Thank you for the the opportunity to let ourselves get lost in our own world of  ideas, thoughts and inspiration. Thank you for rejuvenating and restoring the compassion of creativity we all carry with us, but don’t often have the time to explore. Thank you for being so good to us, a reminder that we need to be good (better) to ourselves.  Thank you for making us laugh, a lot.

And a big huge thank you to my lovely friend Leslie for making it all possible for me. I loved every moment.  Here’s to many more excursions with you and I promise to be a better navigator on the way home. xx


The stunning setting for this event was held at Terrain at Styers
If you haven’t been to Terrain here 
or in Westport CT it is a must. 
 YOU will be swept away.
